ASSET REPOSITIONING, BRANDSCAPING
The masterplan proposes extensive greening and removal of all surface parking, a new linear park as pedestrian spine linking faculty buildings, revamping of the entrance tunnel with a new atrium and creation of a new entrance plaza. The whole complex is branded with an easily identifiable visual, lighting and landscape signature.
